Farm Shares

For those of you who just can't grow enough of your own due to dogs, toddlers, working in other states, lack of land, or my own personal excuse--laziness, here are some info on your own potential farm shares:

Look up local CSAs here, including big Monroe Farms & small Granata Farms
And northerners try Coastalfields free home delivery.

Half or 'single' shares recommended, and run in the neighborhood of $350 for 5 months, which is about $17.50 per week for 2 bags (in my experience) of produce--fresh, local, organic and in season, plus no grocery-store hassle. Some also come with 'pick your own' and/or fruit or eggs or meat add-ons.

You could also look up co-ops at the LocalHarvest site above for 'order-in' options and all kinds of food goods.
